Heading Home

Since 1998, British actor Clive Arrindell has shaved his noggin and headed off to Spain.

There he is the fairy godfather El Calvo [the Bald], star of Spain’s popular Christmas lottery El Gordon [The Fat].

For his public ridicule, Clive earns a reported £80,000 a year. But no more.

“El Calvo had cannibalised the advertising campaigns, making people forget what they were about,” says a state lottery spokesman. El Calvo is the victim of his own success.

No more will Spaniards be able to rub his shiny head for good luck. For shame!
